End of an Era -- Gameroom Magazine Closes

No, the No Bull MAME Guide isn't RetroBlast
Recommended. But I hope Kevin's back soon;
I'd love to send him a copy.
It's a sign of the times, with so many arcade companies going under this year. But this one really hurts. Not only was Kevin, the publisher, a great guy, but he'd improved the magazine so much in just a few years. In the end, subscriptions dropped as did advertising. I know several arcade builders who dropped their ads in the last couple years.

Thew good news for subscription holders is that Kevin isn't leaving them high and dry. He's giving everyone a free PDF edition of every issue. That's a class act.

I for one, hope that Kevin brings back. Maybe as a blog?
